                You guys are just gluttons for punishment with the on again off again nature of how DE publishes these things,but I like a lot of what is on all your lists.This list I would have to say has the best suggestion in Robin Hood, and since that should be a public domain title, means no licensing fee and should mean a 2.99 price tag.(hint,hint,DE)Dracula has been done to death recently by a variety of companies,but with the right spin who knows?Rather than James Bond how about Donald Hamilton's Matt Helm? It's time to rectify those Dean Martin films with a straight forward take,but in the tongue in cheek vein ( but not camped up) Modesty Blaise. Complete with full frontal Nailers!The spy the Black Widow wanted to be.

                    Licensing from Fritz Leiber? The world of Nehwon.

                    What about Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser from Fritz Leiber? I do not know if they are out of copywrite or not.

                    What about Orson's Scott Card's "Ender"? If you follow the book like you are doing with Warlord of Mars, Mr. Card may allow you to.

                      Wow, spartan1961, I guess you must have missed it. Marvel's been doing "Ender's Game" comics for like, a year and a half, two years now. Fafhrd and Grey Mouser isn't anywhere near old enough to be public domain, but I guess Dynamite could pay for the official license. Nobody's done a comic adaptation in a while.

                        Ender's Game

                        Thanks for the heads up on Marvel. I missed the boat on that one! I'll have to check it out.

                          This Guy

                          The Haunted Horseman (formaly known as the original Ghost Rider from the 1950’s Magazine Enterprise)

                          I can already hear the title of the first hardcover volume

                          as in the style of the Phantom (The Ghost Who Walks)

                          But this time


                          Would love to see Alex Ross do some cool covers for this character

                          And of course like Green Hornet, a classic golden age hardcover archives all in one single volume of the first golden age Ghost Rider stories from the 1950's

                            Only the longest running science fiction series of all time - Perry Rhodan. This book series has been going continuously since 1961 and has over 2600 volumes, telling the entire future history of mankind from the first manned landing on the moon. No need to even write up new original stories - just pick the best of the books and write them up into comic book format.

                              No doubt about it. Perry Rhodan's the king of the sci-fi heroes, if mileage counts for anything. Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Captain Future, Dan Dare, Jeff Hawke, Tom Corbett Space Cadet, Space Patrol, Star Trek, and the rest may be older or better known, but in terms of unbroken continuity and sheer word count, Rhodan wins hands down (50 years of prose adventures and still going strong!). By this time, just about any science fiction idea that's ever been imagined has been done in the Perry Rhodan pulps. Too bad Americans haven't seen him around since the English translation Ace Books paperbacks stopped in the late 1970s.

                              Can't understand why PR's parent company can't seem to crack the American marketplace. You just know that sooner or later, someone's going to make a big blockbuster movie out of the Rhodan saga, and then maybe people will notice (hey, it only took Tintin 80 years).

                                New licenses are good but don't ignore current titles

                                New titles are all well and good but DE has been ignoring some current series in favor of new titles. They don't even answer simple questions these days! They either need more help or better focus on what pays the bills and maintains there loyal customer base. If they don't do the latter then they could evaporate like many other publishers in the past. I certainly don't want to see that happen. Most of what I purchase monthly are DE titles!! Keep your eye on the ball DE!!!!
